ISEMA: Perspectives on Innovation, Science & Environment is a student-organized, annually published academic journal showcasing some of the best and brightest young minds studying sustainability at Carleton’s School of Public Policy & Administration.

ISEMA connects students, graduates, faculty and staff around some of the most exciting and innovative sustainability policy research in Canada today.


Carleton Perspectives on Public Policy (CPoPP) is the School of Public Policy and Administration’s (SPPA) student-run, peer-reviewed, academic journal. The goals of CPoPP are to expand the student publications within SPPA, create a platform for dialogue about policy issues and provide students with the opportunity to engage in the peer-review and production process. CPoPP showcases exceptional research done by SPPA students in public management and policy analysis.


SIGNALS is a group of ‘Students, Interested parties, and Graduates Networking And Liaising around Sustainability.’ The network stems from the Innovation, Science, and Environment stream of Public Administration Program and the Sustainable Energy (SE) Program, both of Carleton’s School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA). SIGNALS brings together students, alumni, and professors who are concerned about sustainable development issues.
